Dear DHS Students and Families,
The DHS staff are working diligently to transfer to remote learning. We will continue to prepare remote lessons throughout this week. We will be ready to provide remote learning opportunities starting Monday, March 23, 2020. School staff will be contacting homes this week to collect information that will help determine modes of remote instruction. If you have not received a call by Wednesday, March 18, 2020, please call Dirigo High School.
All DHS students are expected to utilize their district emails to access information from their teachers and as a means of communication with teachers, unless internet access is unavailable in their household.
During remote learning, the work students are assigned will be counted towards grades. Teachers and ed-techs will be available from 8:30 - 2:30 on “school” days via email. Students should connect with teachers, as needed, with any questions or if they need clarification of instruction or directions.
Per the current MPA guidance, spring sports have all been postponed. During this school closure, no practices will be held. Please follow the Dirigo Athletics page on Facebook for current information.
It is our goal to be a source of support during this stressful period. We will be offering remote learning as long as necessary. We understand the various stress levels on families but do sincerely request that you encourage your child(ren) to complete the assigned work. We want to continue to support all of our students and our current seniors who are slated to graduate in June. Let’s work together to ensure that they all meet the expectations and can graduate on time.
Please remain safe during these stressful times. Practice social distancing and wash your hands regularly. We care about your well-being.
